he School of life sciences is comprised of two tracks, an equivalent to a division or department. All tracks are closely intertwined with each other to provide opportunity for learning knowledge to face the questions the world is asking such as developing a new way of producing energy, making a breakthrough in medical diagnostics, creating new materials for 21st century applications, and studying biology to solve the hurdles related to cancer.
"World-leading research groups in the interdisciplinary areas of Biomedical Engineering and Biological Sciences" As technologies in the 21th century have been rapidly sophisticated and complex, comprehension based on various perspectives becomes the key toward scientific and engineering progresses. In order to meet the demands of the times, the school of life sciences at UNIST offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, with interdisciplinary research and training opportunities in broad fields covering chemistry, biology, physics, material science, electronics, and chemical engineering. With selecting research topics based on their own interests, individual students are guided by their faculty supervisors for course work and doctoral studies. Public services and supportive social structure of our school is an important component to achieve a high level of success and high quality-of-life.

The School of life sciences envisions that the synergy effect of having a world-leading faculty from broad areas, housed in state-of-the-art facilities, and mentoring students interactively, will produce excellent and creative graduates. Our students will seek meaningful international careers in academic or industrial fields, and government agencies.
